Las Vegas offers a wide range of wedding options to suit different budgets and preferences, from simple chapel ceremonies to luxurious hotel packages, and even beautiful natural settings in the nearby desert. 

One thing to bear in mind when looking at Las Vegas Wedding prices is that what is listed is often not the full price. Very often the price listed will not show ‘required’ gratuities and fees that will be tagged on along the way.

For example, many wedding providers and Vegas Chapels will charge a fee for the wedding, then require an officiant gratuity, photographer gratuity, and driver gratuity if you had a limo transfer to and from your ceremony. 

Gratuities are a great way to show your appreciation for those that helped make your day special. But when it is required, it means the chapels are not paying the officiant, you are, and they pay their other employees very little counting on you to make up the difference.

Then there are venues that will tack on a ‘service fee’ that is collected after the wedding and photos are done. One chapel I worked with downtown had a 19% service fee written into their contracts and was often a shock to the couple at the end of the night, because who reads the fine print?

This makes their pricing look less expensive up front, but when all is said and done, you are coming out of pocket with more than you had initially calculated. And any gratuity or tip that is compulsory ceases to be a gratuity and becomes a part of their pricing structure.

After over two decades in the Las Vegas Wedding industry, we have chosen to include all gratuities and fees in our pricing so there are no surprises on the day of your wedding.

Let’s look at a few Las Vegas Wedding provider categories as examples.

Chapel Weddings: Prices for chapel weddings can start for under $200, with many packages including essentials like flowers, photos, and limousine rides. Popular options include drive-thru weddings starting at $89 and themed weddings starting at $199.

There is a wide range of experiences to be had in a Las Vegas Wedding, from cheesy and non-serious to traditional and churchy-looking chapels. There is something to be said for the old saying, ‘You get what you pay for.’

Las Vegas is the home of the budget wedding, where you can marry in shorts or in costume, or from early morning to midnight in most places. If you’re not looking to make it a deeply meaningful and special event, then the Las Vegas Chapel scene is your way to go.

Expect to receive an envelope from anyone involved in facilitating your wedding for the expected gratuities.

Hotel and Resort Weddings: For a more upscale experience, many hotels and resorts l offer packages starting at around $1,600 for their very basic packages. These packages often include more elaborate settings and additional services. 

The proximity of a resort wedding to area restaurants, shows, and other amenities make it attractive, as well as the ornate settings of some of the chapels. Walking down from your hotel room to the venue in the same resort is an easy setup.

The resorts will often include the officiant’s fee in the package price which is helpful, but look for other fees or tip expectations in other services. Be sure you are aware of everything that is expected or required of you.

The good thing is that they will most likely provide you with a detailed contract outlining all the conditions and details.

Outdoor and Destination Weddings: Outdoor weddings at scenic locations such as the Valley of Fire or Nelson Ghost Town are a departure from the standard Vegas Wedding. These packages can offer a unique backdrop for your ceremony, often including transportation and photography.

This is where Las Vegas Luv Bug Weddings has really placed our affections. After working for over 20 years inside the Las Vegas Wedding industry, at both chapels and resorts, we found that the beauty of the natural setting around Las Vegas was unparalleled.

You have the freedom to hold your ceremony and photo session in the fiery red sandstone of the Valley of Fire State Park, and return to the lights and cuisine of Las Vegas in the same afternoon. Or the rustic desert charm of a Nelson Ghost Wedding, with classic autos and old west chapel, barns, and cactus for your wedding backdrop and then have your dinner at a world-class restaurant shortly after. 

Capturing a scene and backdrop that exists very few locations around the world, while relaxing or partying in all the amenities of Vegas brings the best of both worlds.

Also, to have packages and a la carte options to add on to tailor your day to include the things you most want is a real positive benefit. From a simple elopement with just the two of you, or even a micro wedding with a few family and friends (we work with up to 50 people), you can experience an incredibly meaningful moment of sealing your love for a lifetime and capturing the beauty of the experience in nature with all the elements you love.

All-Inclusive Packages: Comprehensive packages, which might include the venue, officiant, flowers, photography, and more, help you to cover all your bases These are great for couples looking for a one-stop solution.

Every one of our Luv Bug packages provides the officiant and photographer, and the wedding location the package was created for. From there, you can add items and services to your package to provide everything you are looking for on your wedding day.

We are able to schedule hair and makeup, bring your bouquet, schedule limo transportation for you, and even have packages that provide for a cake cutting and champagne toast for Bride and Groom with additional photos.

Our interactive online quotes will allow you to select and deselect your items and services until you get it just how you like it before you accept the quote.

Overall, Las Vegas Luv Bug Weddings offers flexibility and a range of options to fit different budgets and styles, making it a popular choice for couples looking to tie the knot.
